Tessa is a 10-year-old beagle mix who somehow lost her way and was found as a stray in Southeast D.C.

While a little shy, Tessa is a typical beagle: She loves to have her nose down sniffing all there is to smell. She loves people, is easygoing and is very easy to handle.

Also in typical beagle fashion, Tessa seems cheerful and happy, and she wants nothing more than to be with her humans, whether on walking adventures or snuggled up on the couch. Her medium size makes her great for any home.

If you are over 50, Tessa qualifies for the Humane Rescue Alliance’s Boomers’ Buddies program and her adoption fee will be waived. Stop by Humane Rescue Alliance’s Oglethorpe Street Adoption Center and meet Tessa. She’ll be waiting!
